How was your bikey week?
|Outsiders looking in|
Monday: We biked to the library so it wasn't that far. Same old Rainier Ave.
Tuesday: We were pedestrians. We walked to the light rail and then experimented with the new Capitol Hill Streetcar line. Since I was wearing rain boots I slipped while trying to take a picture. It was humorous but left me with a bruise on my right leg.
|Let's get more strollers and bikes here, what will happen?|
|He's probably thinking where he can throw that ambulance|
|It's not a picture of the bike but of Chicano Batman, better than gringo Batman|
|The Light Rail which means I stand here with my bike|
Thursday: I almost biked over a pedestrian and got yelled out. Oh GAWWWWW. Downtown 2nd Ave has an okay protected bike lane. Right now construction is everywhere so I hate biking there but in the interest of saving time and trying to pick up my daughter after her class I needed to make a quick trip. I was biking west on 2nd Ave and thought I would be smart and bike until it ends and make a right on Pike because I do bike on the street.
|See the woman waiting in the crosswalk|
|I know people hate to wait but seriously, right in front of the bike hole opening?|
Aww, so last week was productive and I got some exciting falling and almost crashing action. Horray for me. Biking and walking and some transit works and that's what keeps us car free.
